Answers :

My window has dropped down on the drivers side and I can hear the motor working but the window is down in the door panel and won't come up. How do I get the door panel off to see if the window can be placed back on track. I see 1 screw only and after unscrewing it panel is still firmly attached. Please help . I need to know how to get this door panel off.

\015\012\015\012I just went thru this on my 2002. The silver handle is actually plastic (I didn't previosly realize this) and had broken in such a way that it no longer applied leverage to the door mechanism. Everything still worked fine from the outside.
I got a new handle from the dealer (is one complete piece) for about $70. and took the door apart (much more difficult than it sounds).3 or 4 screws across the bottom - 2 in the flip up portion of door handhold and 1 straight behind the handle itself. Lots of plastic pop locks holding door in place - need to be pulled straight out vice normal slide up - proceed slow - very easy to break plastic pieces. Replacing handle requires you to drill out three rivets and replace them for holding new door handle in place.
Can do in about 1 hr with help and all the necessary tools - flat pry bar, screwdrivers, cordless drill, etc.
